“Wonderful food, smallest bathroom ever”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2012

This is a typical conference hotel and I suppose the main goal when they built the guest rooms was to cram in as many as possible. It looks like they put a lot of effort into furnishing the small rooms to make them look airy and welcoming. The problem is the bathroom, which is the smallest and most impractical I have ever seen in a Norwegian hotel. If you suffer from a touch of claustrophobia, make sure to ask for one of their larger rooms.

The food is excellent. Breakfast is typical Quality style with different hot egg dishes, bacon, sausages etc and a good choice of vegetables and fruits. Breads and cereals, yogurt etc. The lunch buffet is a big selection of salads, cold cuts, cured meat, smoked salmon and such, seasonal hot dishes (we got Norwegian Christmas foods) and a nice dessert table. Our dinner was four courses, all tasty and very well prepared. Quiet and efficient service.

The conference facilities were very good, fresh air and no technical glitches. I wish they would do something about the guest rooms/bathrooms, which is the only reason I don't rate this hotel higher.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a large bathroom.

We have used hotell for strategic workshops and can say that we were not dissapointed. Hotell is placed out of the Asker city, providing calm natural area for discussions and thinking. Rooms are stylish and big enough. Staff is scandinavian proffesional and friendly. Lunch was very tasty and had a huge selection of food. Can't complain on anything. It was a bit difficult to find, recommend taxi.

The food was very nice, especially lunch. They had a lovely selection of food. I really enjoyed the seafood.

My room was nice and the bed was very comfy. The bathroom was small, but functional. My only complaint is that the television in the room was awful. The picture was grainy and made my eyes hurt.

Leangkollen is nicely located about 20 kilometers outside Oslo. Its a typical Norwegian conference hotel, although the main building is an older building of timber - and more cozy than an average hotel. Tiny rooms strongly need an upgrade - the bathroom was an one star experience. The best part of the hotel is the food. Both lunch and dinner are close to the top league in Norway and the conference facilities are good enough (the staff needs some more training to run meetings more smooth).

Tiny rooms, but convenient facilities for conferences. Buffet food above avarage, but the restaurant area gets rather crowded during days with many or large conferences.

As a bacon fan I was surprised to see the bacon "rationed" during breakfast: One small piece on top of each fried egg. Only in Norway...

Room Tip: All rooms come with a view :-)

Having read mixed reviews of this hotel on Tripadvisor, I was pleasantly surprised. I got a room in the 1970s remodelled annexe. The room was quite an ok size for one person, though two people should not have much luggage. One thing I missed in the room was one of those luggage fold out racks which is found in some hotelrooms. The bathroom was clean, and of standard hotel size. The decor of the room was modern and nice, the bathroom was a bit outdated. What made this quite a good hotel experience was the bed, very comfortable! The lunch buffet I would say lives up to its Tripadvisor reputation, as very good. It had a mix of Norwegian traditional buffet items, as well as more tapas style dishes. The four course dinner served was also excellent, and the portions were well balanced. The breakfast on the other hand was less exciting with the usual suspects of cereals, egg and bacon, and a variety of cold cuts. Having stayed for a conference, I thought the conference rooms were ok, and suited their purpose well. The hotel's placement is about 10 minutes drive from the train station, and thus you require a taxi if you wish to go outside the hotel. around the hotel there is nature and a great view of the Oslo fjord.

Room Tip: Not for tourists wishing to explore Oslo. Ok for conference/meetings.

This is purely a conference hotel. It is an old building, with a history from the WWII - nice hotel. The rooms are clean, but tiny! Internet connection could be better all over the hotel. The food is good. One problem though - the bar closes the outdoor serving at 11pm !!!! Very strange!

Regarding the closing time for outdoor serving, it is one of the rules we have to follow to keep our liquer licens.
